The Best Place for Play

Spark and ES Field Trip

Where can you climb a tower, pan for gems in a stream, and score the winning goal? The answer is Mason District Park!

Yesterday, the Spark and Elementary Studios took a surprise field trip to the park. We enjoyed the spring sunshine with an afternoon of play time.

Experts say that play is essential for children. And not just because it is fun.

Children develop critical skills through play. Yesterday, I saw our heroes improve physical coordination as they navigated the monkey bars and spinning lily pads. Heroes finding creative solutions to building bridges and forts. Older heroes playing and mentoring younger heroes. New friendships sprouting.

The Village School is experience-driven and we strive to create meaningful opportunities both inside and out of the studio.

And sometimes you just need the perfect spot for play, like a park. We are lucky that it is right down the road!
